Recently I received a letter from Gabrielle Davey, introducing herself as a qualified Health Counsellor and Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner and, most importantly, as a lover of animals – our fur children, as she calls them. After a double loss earlier this year Gabrielle now counsels others who may find it difficult to get compassion, understanding and support when they lose a ‘fur family member’.
Gabrielle writes saying:
“Today, many people integrate animals into their life and bond with them to the extent that they become part of the family. The associated relationship that is formed often bears similar characteristics to someone with a human child…
As an adult, I have spent more than 22 years raising my own amazing fur children, Teagan and Oliver. From my own life’s journey, I know that the trauma, loss and grief experienced when someone loses a ‘fur family member’ is similar (if not the same) to that experienced when a human passes…
In honour of my relationship with Teagan and Oliver, I am now expanding my services to specifically assist people who may need help to process the deep grief or trauma associated when they lose a fur family member.
‘The Descendants of Noah’ is a take on the story of Noah’s Ark. As a child, I was fascinated by this legend and always remembered that when the great floods came, Noah and his family saved the animals…so, the name seemed to be very appropriate. I do not have an affiliation with any specific religious groups but like this particular story..”

A lovely thought
